Hello friends, Twitter pals and people who enjoy swearing in their entertainment.

What if there could be Indie TV, just like Indie movies from the past? Ongoing episodic stories made outside of a TV network or studio that are shown on the web.

That's our goal, make entertaining independent TV for the web.

What's Vampire Mob?

Vampire Mob is an original independent web series comedy, with swearing and murder. The first season was made with no production company or web site backing it, just a bunch of talented actors, a script and a couple of 10-year old non-HD video cameras, which barely made it through the shoot and need to be replaced (we kinda killed them making season one!).

We are one of the first web series that was closed-captioned for the hearing impaired and all by volunteers. Vampire Mob has also been translated by volunteers into French and German subtitles and episode one has been translated into Klingon with more on deck!

Right now, the show is also being translated into Spanish and Afrikaans!

We shot six episodes at donated and stolen locations and used lots of DIY/guerilla filmmaking tactics.

Season two

We are raising the budget to shoot season two with better cameras (that actually work!) and to cover things like insurance, permits, teeth, guns, blood, cards, a hard drive...

The first season stars John Colella (CSI: NY, The West Wing), Reamy Hall (Criminal Minds), Marcia Wallace (The Simpsons, The Bob Newhart Show), Kirsten Vangsness (Criminal MInds), Chris Mulkey (Twin Peaks, Boardwalk Empire), Elizabeth Beckwith (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Andrea Cansler (The Groundlings Sunday Company), Jim Roof (Murderabilia) and Cris D'Annunzio (Chasing 3,000).

Season one has been completed and can be seen at http://www.VampireMob.com, right now!
